I have been teaching for about 9 years now and I used to get 'good' or 'ourstanding' in my lesson observations. However, after my return from maternity leave (I took a year off) I keep getting inadequate in lessons. The goal posts have moved so much since I have been away and despite seeing what other teachers are doing and seeking advice I am still failing even if the pupils have worked well. I have maily bottom sets and I am currently having problems with bullying and depression in my department which is a separate issue. I am so frightened I will lose my job as they use performance for redundancy. I used to be a good teacher and I have no confidence in myself despite the students saying they enjoy my lessons and understand what I am teaching them! Help!
